Ethiopia Ceases Issuance Of Visas On Arrival To Nigerians

 

 

The Ethiopian government has announced that it will cease the issuance of visas on arrival for Nigerians with immediate effect.

This was made known on Tuesday through a memo sent to travel partners by the East African nation, where it indicated that travellers need to obtain their visas from the embassy before entry into the country

“Please, be informed that effective immediately, no more visas on arrival for Nigerian citizens,” it reads in part.

It also revealed that “Passengers having a layover in Addis to travel the next morning to Zanzibar, Seychelles, Lusaka, Lilongwe, Harare, Cape Town, etc., are not affected by the ban and do not need a transit visa for their trips,”

Similarly, it mandated that Nigerians and 42 other nations intending to come to the country show proof of yellow fever vaccination cards at its borders.

Reasons for the adoption of this policy remain unknown
